Poll: Applicants for P4/P5/D1 posts

I think we should be trying to get a sense of how long these processes take, regardless of the claim to be targetting a 60 day period from closure to finalisation.

Hi!

First, thank you so much for this incredible resource! As I'm sure ever other list member has likely mentioned, it is so wonderful to have a community of others in a similar position trying to navigate such a labyrinthine and esoteric recruitment process as the UN systems.

I've just applied for a P4 post that closes tomorrow, and I will be sure to circle back to complete this poll (hopefully) when I hear back.

Relatedly, I noticed that these all have been grouped together. Is there a particular relationship between these position levels?

I was very sad that the position I wanted was only a P4 given the amount of education and experience. Ideally, I would've wanted a D1, but I'd rather apply to lower grade positions to be more competitive. All that notwithstanding, I would clearly be thrilled at the chance for a P4 if one were offered (and just work my way back up as best and as fast as I can). :D .
